They told him ...

Author(s): Clay Steinman
Source: The Nation
Mr. Steinman is a free-lance writer living in New York. Like all true believers, the members of the young Church of Scientology (or Dianetics as it is sometimes known) believe they have found the answers. A visit to their New York headquarters in the Hotel Martinique shows that Scientology has at least put smiles on a few faces and seems to have solved many of the existential problems of the members who work and study there. According to the recent U. ...

Source: Yuma Daily Sun

(One of those who didn't attend had given his reason beforehand: "I dropped out of Scientology - 2000,000 years ago.") Dobson-Smith didn't really need anybody else anyway: there are already ten thousand Scientologists in Toronto, he ...
